14. It is recommended that any document (reference) referred to in paragraph 7, above, and cited in the search report should be indicated by the following letters or a sign to be placed next to the citation of the said document (reference):
(a) Categories indicating cited documents (references) of particular relevance:
Category “N”: The claimed invention cannot be considered novel when the document is taken alone;
Category “I”: The claimed invention cannot be considered to involve an inventive step when the document is taken alone;
Category “Y”: The claimed invention cannot be considered to involve an inventive step when the document is combined with one or more other such documents, such combination being obvious to a person skilled in the art;
Category “X”1: This category was previously recommended to indicate that the claimed invention cannot be considered novel or cannot be considered to involve an inventive step when the document is taken alone. New search reports should no longer use this category. The more specific categories “N” or “I” should be used instead.
(b) Categories indicating cited documents (references) of other relevant prior art:
Category “A”: Document defining the general state of the art which is not considered to be of particular relevance;
Category “D”: Document cited by the applicant in the application and which document (reference) was referred to in the course of the search procedure. Code “D” should always be accompanied by one of the categories indicating the relevance of the cited document;
Category “E”: Earlier patent document as defined in Rule 33.1(c) of the Regulations under the PCT, published on or after the international filing date. Code “E” should preferably be accompanied by one of the categories “N”, “I”, “X”1, “Y” or “A”;
1 Category “X” is no longer recommended to be used by the industrial property offices, but the search reports established earlier than July 1, 2015 may contain this category either as the main one, or accompanying categories “E”, “O” or “P”.
